This is not something you can get in an e-mail. Adjusting the doors on
a Delorean takes some experience. You have to get the both locks to
lock together in the second locking position. That usually takes
adjusting the anchor pins. Then you have to open the door and go
through the whole adjustment procedure mayby a couple of times till
you are satisfied. In some cases you will have to remove the latches
and clean and relubricate them to get them to work smoothly. At the
Door adjustment this year one car wouldn't work consistantly.
Sometimes it would lock you in and most of the time it worked fine. It
turned out to be a problem with the rear latch, it would not hold and
was not staying in the second locking position. You can start by
spraying some lubricant at the latches and see if that helps.
